More TV's With Satelite

I want to get a new 5th wheel. I can only find satellite antennas that can take 3 TVs. How do I get more TVs?

Multiswitch. Something similar to this, but they are provider specific, DIRECT or DISH.

OK I am getting old. I didn't even think about the splitters.
Thanks

If you need more than 3 televisions, you can't be that old. Sounds just like my daughter.

Sounds like a waste of money . You can only watch one at a time.

Knowing a lot more about your desired setup in the 5th wheel would help a lot.

How many TV's? Actually, how many "tuners" would be a more specific answer. For instance, DVR's from DirecTV or Dish use at least 2 "tuners" where a stand alone receiver uses 1.
What service are you looking at using, Dish or DirecTV?
Do you want HD or SD reception?
Do you want the ability to record shows for later viewing?
Do you already have a sat service at home and want to use existing equipment or are you planning on a completely separate service for the RV than what you use at home? If using equipment from your house, what service and what are the model numbers of the receivers?
Roof top, permanent dish setup or domed/portable type?
What's your budget?


For instance, I have DirecTV at home and want to use a couple of the receivers we already have. I also wanted a portable tripod DirecTV SWM setup with an LNB that can support up to 13 tuners, because sometimes a friend may accompany us and we can simply connect their receiver onto our splitter and share the dish. In our setup, we use a Genie DVR (5 tuners) a stand alone H25 tuner in the bedroom (1 tuner), and a wireless C41W mini tuner (uses a tuner on the Genie) for the TV that goes outside.
